Thank you for listening to my podcast with Dr Minha Rajput-Ray and Lucy Peel. 

Dr Minha Rajput-Ray is an Integrated Lifestyle Medicine Physician. Lucy Peel has an MSc in Nutritional Therapy and her BSc in Naturopathy. 

Dr Minha Rajput-Ray is an Integrative and Lifestyle Medicine Physician, Registered Osteopath and Naturopath. This is a unique combination bridging the best of conventional medicine and holistic modalities. She focuses on Pain, Chronic Disease and Work Health, builds on the past 20 years of expertise (having trained in London, Dundee, a highly coveted NIHR (Walport) Academic Clinical Fellowship in Rheumatology, at the Universities of Manchester and Cambridge). 

 She also serves as Medical Director of a nutrition education think tank and continues to contribute to global health work under the auspices of ICOH (International Commission on Occupational Health, WHO and International Labour Organisation partnerships).

She has been able to implement this approach 'as a proof of concept' and successfully implemented this alongside standard medical care. Her experience is in the care of Corporate and Finance employees, NHS workers, Public Services (Teachers, Higher and Further Education staff, Law Enforcement Agencies - Police, Armed Forces, Probation Service), the Safety Critical Sector, Logistics (Road, Rail and Offshore), Heavy industry manufacturing, and Charitable Sector (including SMEs and Social Enterprises). 

The outcomes of this include increased productivity, reduced sickness absence and sustainable wellness via a healthy ageing approach in managing health related disability. Integrated Medicine can indeed save Lives and Livelihoods!
